Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed here with our 2 kids for 4 nights as part of an 8 night trip to KI. Firstly the view when you walk through the back door and look out to the front is breathtaking. The front verandah was wonderful to sit / eat on and watch the water and prolific bird life in front garden. The house is very comfortable and well stocked with everything you may need for cooking etc. Location is perfect for exploring the eastern half of KI as it’s central and 5 minutes drive from American River. The owners are very welcoming and popped past to see how we were going. Highly recommend and make sure you stay for longer than a few nights as you won’t want to leave!

Delightful cottage

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic, rustic cottage with everything you need with extras. The owners have provided beautiful warm, clean and homely accommodation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and were sad we only had 2 nights here. The garden was also lovely and felt we could totally relax. Thank you Mary-Alice and Ron for your welcome and all the little thoughtful details found around the cottage.Would recommend Pelican Cottage without hesitation.
